We are very excited to be partnering with KitchenAid® to bring you our new favorite cookie recipe, which are these Chai, Chocolate Chip and Coconut Cookies! The coconut gives these cookies a little texture, which I love. And the chai makes these the perfect fall cookie! Pro tip: these are amazing dunked in coffee.
Around this time of year I am always looking for new cookie recipes to bake and give to friends or co-workers so I am happy to be sharing this recipe with you! These cookies are perfect for the Holidays, but also for anytime.
In making these cookies we used our all time favorite appliance which is our KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer. It makes baking a breeze because you don’t have to stand next to your bowl holding a mixer. The KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer comes in so many colors and their new matte colors are AMAZING.
We used a small scoop for these cookies to make them kind of a one bite, which I am a fan of with cookies, but you could use a bigger scoop if that is what you like. I hope you guys enjoy!

Hi can you substitute honey for molasses? Thank you!!
Yes! (1:1) The flavor will be just a touch lighter, but you can definitely sub it in
Hey! This looks great, I am planning on making these for Christmas, I had a couple of questions!
For how long, and how, can i store the dough?
Also, I intend on wrapping them in those transparent wraps to give them to people. Will it retain it’s crunch?
It’ll be great if you could help out!
Hi Meghan! I recommend wrapping the dough tightly in plastic wrap, and it should keep in the refrigerator for about 5 days!
As long as the cookies aren’t stored in an area with a lot of moisture or humidity, you should be just fine!
Thank you so much! Love your recipes!
Just wondering… are the cookies soft or crunchy? Also, I don’t have any chai spice so what do you think would be a compliment spice?
I don’t have the spice either. Here’s what I got from searching ;-)
3 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4- 1/2 tsp black pepper (optional)
Have you ever tried with cinnamon chips instead of chocolate?
